The latest Too Long, Didn’t Listen podcast starring Syp and Dodge discusses Vanguard’s upcomimg transition to free to play, and mentions my post from the other day pondering the potential reasons behind it. Besides this display of incredibly good taste, Syp revealed a couple of small tidbits from a conversation he had with John Smedley. Apparently, Smed was “really excited” about Vanguard going free to play and used the word “relaunch,” saying that SOE was trying to give Vanguard the good launch that it never had. Which is very encouraging to hear.
There are also a number of other interesting points raised as well, and the whole show is worth both a listen and a subscription.
